However, my first time around, I wish I had known that the interviewers are "making a case" for us as an individual for the whole admissions committee. They really are there to help you. Tell them what you want the admissions committee to know. If they don't ask you at the end of your interview, voluntarily tell them, "Hey I would really like for the committee to know this about me." Also, don't be nervous...I know that's easier said than done! Just relax and be yourself!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The evening portion is extremely laid back, and only current students were present there. They basically prime you for what will happen the next day. You don't have to say much. The other interviewees were very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"i should not have been so nervios. it was a very relaxing process." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not to be so high strung." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not to be as nervous as I was. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I made sure I was well prepared. Others should know that the only thing interviewers have is your personal statement (nothing else). They are, in general, very friendly. Their goal is to be your advocate in front of the admissions committee so prepare to talk honestly about shortcomings (not excuses, but explanations and what you've done to redeem yourself) so they can go back and make a case for you."

"I wish I had known it was going to be HOT in there even though it was November!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The number of students who go on to specialize is not that high. Not a huge emphasis on research; although there is plenty to do for those who want it. It's just not emphasized. The new dean, however, says student research will be a top priority. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"great" More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a long interview with a night before interview with dental students and a 6-hour interview the following morning. There are 2 one-on-one 30-minute interviews with faculty the rest is discussions and tours and signing stuff." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very impressive interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"AU has our state's only dental school at an affordable price. It is a school that prides itself on producing very solid clinicians. The vibe here is very laid back, so be as personable yet tactful as you can during interview day. The cost of living here isn't too bad, either. This school was my first choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, in state oriented, they genuinely wanted to get to know each candidate and I love that students are on the admissions team." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great community and very open" More from this Member | Report Response

"fantastic school... Looking to start this upcoming year" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was expecting the reception the night before the interview to be a stand-up, mix an mingle thing. It was more of a round table discussion with current students answering interviewees' questions. One comment they made was that boys need to remember to wear dark socks with their interview outfit - they've seen several boys go sockless." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the school is great. The dean gave a tour of the building and she knew everyones name as we pass by them, which was impressive. They admission staff really care about the students and are there for you." More from this Member | Report Response

"You can't beat the combination of good value and education." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great Experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"The pre-interview was great. You get aquainted with current students and other applicants. FYI: If you stay at the Quality Inn across the street from the school, get a room that is not close to the vending machine and ice dispenser. Or you'll be up all night!!!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive; 2 25 minute interviews" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very fun and informative." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience! The reception before is nice and the students are awesome! The interviews don't last long and the interviewers really are there to help you. Prepare by answering questions OUT LOUD!! Relax and eat breakfast!" More from this Member | Report Response

"positive" More from this Member | Report Response

"I think it went pretty well. The pre-interview session really helps to calm your nerves. The faculty that interviewed me seemed really interested in what I had to say and made me feel welcome." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall not as stressful as i would have imagined" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxing..interviewed with about 10 other students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I think MCG is a great state school to study. It will really help develop your clincial skills" More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, my visit to MCG was a positive one and it further strengthened my desire to go there. At the end of the day, you get to shadow students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive. They did a fantastic job of giving a broad view of the school and its faculty." More from this Member | Report Response

"Incredible. Mrs. Perry and Dr. Hanes are the most genuine, sweetest and encouraging people I have ever met." More from this Member | Report Response

"THe interview was very relaxed and informative." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed my experience thoroughly. The gathering with the students the night before eased you into the next days events. Be prepared to spend the entire day there! And you get to shadow/assist at the end!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good experience. I actually had a lot of fun. Be honest and be yourself. People can tell when you're not being sincere. Make sure you have at least one good question prepared to ask each interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was very positive. The actual interviews were not as nerve-racking as I thought they would be. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I came in with low expectations (who wants to be in Augusta for four years?), but left with a very positive impression of the school and the city. I was especially impressed with the students and faculty who made us all feel comfortable the two days we were there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. Both of my interviews were conversations not interrogations. I really like MCG and can definitely picture myself attending :). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interviews. I was myself and everything worked very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"MCG is a great school at a great price, I think it would be hard to beat this deal. The fact that we met wih dental students the day before the interview really shows that they all care about you and was very beneficial in preparation for the interview as well as it provided some insight into a dental students life at MCG." More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely go to the reception the night before the interview- the students really let you know what to expect the next day. Plus you get a dental students perspective of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxed. Be sure to go the night before to meet with the current students; you will find out so much about the school and nothing you say or do there will be considered in admission decisions. Very, very helpful and it will help calm your nerves before the "big day". Also, interviewers will be given access to everything on your file EXCEPT GPA and DAT scores.
